Rotator Cuff Tendonitis

Rotator cuff tendonitis is an inflammation of the tendons in the rotator cuff (shoulder joint). Rotator cuff tendonitis usually occurs over time and can be caused by an overuse or repetitive motion in this area. Swimmer, pitcher’s, and tennis players can be at high risk for rotator cuff tendinitis. Though rotator cuff tendinitis can be quite painful, most people recover with full function. Symptoms of rotator cuff tendonitis may be eased with rest in early stages, but in an advance stage may take treatment such as physical therapy.
